    How did everyone do?
    Leapfrogged Ipswich into 2nd with a 1-0 win

    And Forest lost again, which is always nice. Seems like just yesterday when they were singing "top of the league" back in August haha.

    2 points dropped. Getting sucked into a relegation battle.

    If it wasn't for Millwall getting beat by Blackpool, we'd be in the relegation zone

    What a turnaround Birmingham have gone through. Fair play to them. Just goes to show that with one decent run of form, you are able to find yourself within touching distance of the play-offs.

    1-0 win against Rotherham today, who were the perfect opponents after losing three in a row. Back up to fifth and hopefully we've stopped our form from going on a long slide.

    Watched an amazing match today in the Trophy - Chorley went 2-0 up but FC fought back to 3-2 before conceding a late equaliser. The game had everything: a lad from our coach was ejected before kick off for invading the pitch, loads of pyro, a comeback, a massive scuffle when a steward lost it at being taunted and attacked someone and the best atmosphere at any match this season for me.

    Ah cracking!! Nice one

    haha, not that I can comment on league standings, but that is so true! I remember them being right up there at the start, they've dropped loads now!

    I hope Derby get promoted this year. It was painful watching Zamora steal it last minute last season! (Sorry to bring it up again)

    Don't forget we managed to beat Bournemouth allowing you to go joint top; so we both did each other a favour .

    It was an incredible game at Bournemouth and it was great to see Alex Neil get into the dugout when we (incorrectly) went a man down.

    Went to the Macron for the first time yesterday since we signed king Heskey. Remarkable we are still getting points after losing our 2 best players, and two of our most promising attacking threats from earlier in the season. Scrappy game, poor officiating and disappointing result in the grand scheme of things. Leeds are one of the worst footballing teams I have seen in the Championship. It was terrible to watch.

    It's one of my favourite aspects of the Championship. Literally anything can happen and it gets pretty exciting!

    We need to see this season out, pull ourselves out of the relegation scrap & go again next season. 2 chances missed at the end of the game, that's just how we drop points. Haven't scored from open play for something like 700+ minutes now

    That is a quite incredible statistic. You'll beat us when we come to visit.

    Yeah you could have nicked it at the end. Think we had about 10 corners between the 25-45th minute, won the header from every single one and still didn't manage to bundle the ball in. Was bizarre.

    Very true :yy:

    I was watching SSN and I thought you'd messed it up when Howson got sent off. Couldn't believe it when you got your second.

    I still think Bournemouth will fall away. Play-offs seem a certainty for them but I just can't see them keeping up this kind of form to remain in the autos.

    Ex-Canary Chris Martin scoring the winner for us as well - bet you enjoyed that! He had a little bit of an exchange with Mick Mc during his celebration too.

    Good save from Lonergan first-half, too.

    He's been absolutely spot on for the last 2 months. The Leeds lad should have buried it though. 8 yards out in acres of space, stinker really.

    1-0 up away again to a team challenging for the playoffs, streams playing up - tension..

    Hmm, not sure how I feel about this - obviously we need a striker and he did very well at Mk, but I guess I was hoping for someone more proven.

    I agree. Similarly with Brentford, whilst I think they're safe enough to not have to worry about relegation, I predict they'll slide out of the play-offs.
